One of my favourite orchids.

Dendrobium speciosum var. speciosum (aka Thelychiton speciosum var. speciosum) or rock lily thriving in a private collection in Brisbane.

The Perentie (Varanus giganteus) is the largest monitor lizard or Goanna native to Australia.

It is one of the largest living lizards on earth.....capable of speeds up to 25 mph.......

Rocket our hand-raised Brush-tailed Rock wallaby has been in Aussie Ark's care since April!
He is now all grown up and living a 'wild' life up in one of our state-of-the-art breeding enclosures.
We've documented his extraordinary journey over the past seven months, with some truly heart-melting moments. Rocket's successful hand-raising-thanks to Operations Manager Dean Reid and Wildlife Ranger Adam Mowbray - is a true conservation success story for Aussie Ark and we're so proud.
This video is a little retrospective of Rocket's time with us!

BTW....the Australian Open has started. I love the game of tennis and really enjoy how the Australians manage their annual Grand Slam event.


ESPN premiered a 2 hour special last night called : "Australia’s Open: Beyond the Court"

It was fantastic and should be available on ESPN+ to stream.

Australia Day coming up as well on Fri, Jan 26, 2024!

Gonna be a GREAT month for Oz! :)
